How to access a storage system using FilerView

You can use FilerView to access a storage system. FilerView is an HTTP/Web-based graphical management interface that enables you to manage most storage system functions from a Web browser rather than by entering commands at the console, through a Telnet session, the rsh command, or by using scripts or configuration files.

You can also use FilerView to view information about the storage system, its physical storage units, such as adapters, disks and RAID groups, and its data storage units, such as aggregates, volumes, and LUNs. You can also view statistics about network traffic. FilerView online Help explains Data ONTAP features and how to use them.
